Clouds

The clouds were so beautiful today - just like they are every other day but today my kids were taking notice of Gods intricate handywork. And as you know all good conversations happen in the van - so here is what transpired. We were on our way to our good friends the Lindley's and Nathan and Luke were both admiring the clouds. They were saying how some of them looked like different shapes and animals and Nathan chimes in .....

Nathan -Mommy the clouds look like they are made of snow.
Mommy-well they aren't made of snow.
Nathan - well what are they made of?
Mommy - Well I am not really sure - when I was a little girl I used to think they looked like big cotton balls. Can you see them moving?
Nathan - no why are they moving? Mommy - well the earth is constantly spinning so the clouds are actually moving.
Nathan - well who's driving?

I quickly responded - God is! And then I was reminded how incredible our Great God is - he holds Earth and all that is out in space in His hands! He is maker and creator of the universe. "The God who made the world and everything in - being Lord of heaven and earth does not live in temples made by man nor is he served by human hands as though he needed anything since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything." Praise God!!
